Remembering Or Forgetting Dreams

What Causes Forgetting Dreams?

Forgetting dreams can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'needs attention'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose forgetting dreams, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "forgetting dreams" as a symptom.  Here are six possibilities:
  • Vitamin B6 Need
  • DMAE Need
  • Low Melatonin
  • Vitamin B-Complex Need
  • Pyroluria
  • Liver Congestion

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
fatigue after slight exertion
having very low melatonin levels
many white spots on fingernails
pain medication use
high sensitivity to bright light
being prone to 'stitches'
frequent nightmares
depression with some anxiety
high refined white flour consumption
frequent runny nose
history of CFS diagnosis
partial aspartame/neotame avoidance
... and more than 60 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of forgetting dreams:
Cause Probability Status
Low Melatonin 97% Confirm
Vitamin B-Complex Need 56% Possible
Vitamin B6 Need 20% Unlikely
Liver Congestion 4% Ruled out
DMAE Need 0% Ruled out
Pyroluria 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Sleep-Related Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about remembering or forgetting dreams:
Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?
Possible responses:
→ I almost always remember my dreams clearly
→ Average - sometimes I remember / don't know
→ I almost always forget them quickly
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either remembering dreams or forgetting dreams, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
DMAE Requirement

DMAE causes dreams to become more lucid/vivid.

Low Melatonin Level

Low melatonin levels can cause poor dream recall.
